The V1 Line in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province is the world's first dedicated extreme ultraviolet (EUV) line for production of sub-7-nm semiconductors. Samsung Electronics began to operate the line in February 2020.This is in stark constrast to TSMC. The Taiwanese foundry recently mentioned that 5nm yields are already better than the yields of its highly successful 7nm process.
The most important determinant of a semiconductor company’s business performance is its yield. In general, a semiconductor producer’s yield has to exceed 95 percent.
Samsung 5nm yields rumored to be under 50 percent
